was apropos that BLIZZARD, Boston Ski & Sports Club's annual ski-season
kickoff party, just happened to coincide with Boston's very first fall
snowstorm. Luckily, if anyone's equipped to party through inclement conditions,
it's a bunch of skiers and riders. They packed into Royale to throw back "ski
shots," browse the many vendors, and fill out raffle tickets for a slew of rad
prizes (including a trip for two to Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia).
